Flowers Of Summer
Photograph - Photography/ Digital Art
A field of beautiful Black eyed Susan's on a Summers day. The butterfly adds to the beauty of the image along with some effects I have added. I used a painterly effect along with textures to give the photo the look of a painting.
The black-eyed Susan which means �Justice� makes a very nice cut-flower with a vase life up to 10 days.
Butterflies are attracted to Rudbeckia hirta when planted in large color-masses.
It is an upright annual (sometimes biennial or perennial) growing 30�100 cm (12�39 in) tall by 30�45 cm (12�18 in) wide. It has alternate, mostly basal leaves 10�18 cm long, covered by coarse hair, with stout branching stems and daisy-like, composite flowers appearing in late summer and early autumn. In the species, the flowers are up to 10 cm (4 in) in diameter, with yellow ray-florets circling conspicuous brown or black, dome-shaped disc-florets. However, extensive breeding has produced a range of sizes and colours, including oranges, reds and browns.
